"My idea of Christmas, whether old-fashioned or modern, is very simple: loving others. Come to think of it, why do we have to wait for Christmas to do that?"
How incredibly AWESOME was this year!!! This years Christmas Love Campaign was SO incredible! Actually, that is why it has taken me so long to get through everything. I am SO touched by the bigger then ever response by everyone around the world: the beautiful artwork, crafts, cards and the amazing messages. I am also SO touched by the amount of people that we were personally able to help out and maybe make smile a little bit this past holiday season thanks to all of you, all the wonderful sponsors, my wonderful design team, and of course my family that really helped me out. (And puts up with all me ideas that I come up with!) I can’t say THANK-YOU enough!!! I watched as everything would come in, everyday, and my heart would swell. Your kindness was SO beautiful!!! And for me… this being my first Christmas without my Mum, well, I can’t express to you how incredibly AWESOME you made this Christmas Season for me as I watched you spread kindness around you.
Thank-you from the bottom of my heart! xo
Here is a quick run down of events. Now, please note that I am just listing the main events here. If you have been contacted about a prize, however your name is not mentioned here, that is why. However, that being said, we have been having problems with a couple parcels and Canada Post. So, if a couple months go by and your CLC prize does not show up please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will check the tracking number.
During the event I was made aware of Martha Schroeder-Klassen of High River, Alberta. She and her community was horribly effected by last summer’s flood… you can read the whole post HERE. Well, she went an extra mile and held a special event for people that had lost so much, so that they could come and get free craft supplies that were donated from people and places around Alberta. I was so touched that she went the extra mile for others. Thank-you also to Westcott Brand for helping to spread some Christmas love by sending a big GIFT box to Martha! We will also be sending her a CLC goodie box. xoxo
Spirit of Christmas Feast in Medicine Hat – We were told that they needed help and some supplies so we were able to pitch in. It was wonderful to be able to take my kiddos there an Christmas Day and serve Supper to People that didn’t have a place to go or were alone and thanks to our sponsors we where able to deliver off a big box of gifts for them too.
In December I also heard about Sandra Ramirez who had made a HUGE sleeping bag delivery! She Dropped these off at Charity Wings down in California just before Christmas and I was SO touched by this. You Can read more HERE. A big box of goodies from our sponsors are going out to her!
